Tree branches and rhinos

You may recall my post last week about dyeing fabrics in my textile surface design course. You will notice a load of colourful pieces of fabric bellow. Holly and I dyed the carmine ones. Can you find them? I’m just kidding of course! 

We are now learning how to Batik fabric and are instructed to design a nature-inspired motif for our fabric. I flipped through a National Geographic and my Textile Designers book to find some inspiration. We shall see where these preliminary drawings take me. 

Look what I saw on my way home. Very appropriate but it is too bad there were no rhinos roaming the parameters.
